Joe Lallouz and Charlie Shrem discuss imposter syndrome, non-Proof of Work blockchain infrastructure, the Libra Association, and the future of crypto.
Joe Lallouz, CEO of Bison Trails joins Charlie Shrem on this week’s episode of Untold Stories. They begin talking about imposter syndrome, something they both agree is common in crypto, and move on to discuss the New York crypto scene. Joe talks about Bison Trails and its focus on non-Proof of Work blockchain infrastructure, tells the origin story of the name, and talks about his background in engineering and economics. But Charlie has clearly been itching to ask about Joe's participation in the Libra Association. Joe obliges and discusses their guiding mission, the response to Facebook's Libra announcement, other aspects of Libra as well as the decentralization spectrum and centralization points in the industry. Joe goes on to cover the decision-making process with Bison Trails before they finish up discussing the future of crypto and whether people need to know what crypto is for it to be mainstream.
